Famous last words

“I am haunted by Humans.”

Markus Zusak – The bookthief

The ending of a good book is like the ending of an era, you’re leaving friends behind and that can be hard. The last words can give some closure or be super frustrating.

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite last lines. I’ve been reading a lot of books lately, but there are few lines that stick with me as much as this one did. Probably because there’re different meanings that you can give to this phrase, depending on how you’re feeling.

Inspired by ‘the unemployed philosophers guild‘, I’m starting a new series focussed on the last line of a book. So I’ll be sharing my favorite last line and explain a bit why I like them.
